Club Match Information from the Vice Captain

Gentlemen’s Club Team matches will begin next month, with the opening 
fixture being a home match with Stoke Rockford Golf Club on Saturday 9th 
March. Members who are available and wish to be considered for selection 
are warmly invited to add their name to the team sheet that has been put 
on the Noticeboard in the Men’s Changing Room. There is a further team 
sheet for the home match with Blankney on Saturday 30th March. Team 
sheets will be posted in the month preceding the matches in the next 
month (i.e. team sheets for all April matches will go on the Noticeboard 
on Friday 1st March) giving at least 4 weeks notice of a match. Teams 
will be selected and notified on the website and in the Changing Room 7 
days before the date of the match.

Most matches require a team of 6 pairs (12 golfers) and, as in previous 
years, we will aim to select players who make themselves available for 
both home and away matches. We intend to continue to offer brunch before 
home team matches where we can rather than a post-match meal recognising 
that a late finish on a Saturday evening is less popular with most 
members. However, where there is a meal after the match, the Club’s 
expectation is that those who play will attend the meal; if you know 
that you will not be able to stay for post-match refreshment, please 
leave your name off the team sheet.

Captain Howard and I are keen to encourage as many members as possible 
to participate in Club Team matches. If you haven’t played before, 
please think about playing: it’s a great way to play other courses and 
to socialise with other members of the Club. If you would like to play 
and want to find out more, please email me, send me a text or call me 
and I will do my best to answer any questions you may have. Equally, if 
you see either of us in the Clubhouse, feel free to come over and have a 
chat with us.
